Mah Jongg is a very exciting tile game that has been played for over 200 years since the Qing Dynasty. It is a game of skill, strategy and calculation, and also imbued with a certain level of chance. We will be playing American style. Traditionally it has been played by women, but our game has a twist as we are also offering it to men.
OBJECT: To learn how to play Mah Jongg in a friendly and supportive environment. Then to continue as a friendly, recreational group. The leader will supply reusable cards to everyone at a cost of $8 per person.
PARTICIPANTS: Men and women beginners. Experienced players are also welcome and can assist at a table. After a few months everyone will be on a more even ability level.
DAY & TIME: Beginning weekly on Thursdays at 6PM.
PLACE: Initial meetings will be at the leader's house off Keystone Rd. in Evergreen. Future meetings TBD.
REFRESHMENTS: Each participant is asked to supply a refreshment weekly, a main course item or a dessert. We encourage easy store-bought solutions such as pizza. Our object is to learn the game and have fun, not to worry about preparing a dish.
NOTIFICATION: Please call or email Simone if you plan to attend. You will be sent the address and directions. Also please notify the leader if you can bring a Mah Jongg tile set - this will be helpful. All are welcome!
